Alaskan King Crab Salad “Tacos”

April 30, 2012

  This is my last fish/seafood taco recipe for the month, so I decided to make it a good one.  (Not to discount the others, but this is easily my favorite so far.)  This time the challenge was to create our most original taco combo.  I was told this could be left somewhat up to […]

Secret Recipe Club: Crunchy Chocolate Squares

April 23, 2012

For my second month in Secret Recipe Club I was assigned the blog Yumsilicious Bakes.  With an ample amount of pink in her blog design, Avanika is a girl after my own heart.  Her blog is full of sweet treats like Chocolate Overdose Cake and Snickerdoodles.

April 20, 2012

Time again to mark your calendars. The Third Annual National Food Blogger Bake Sale is a week from this tomorrow.

Thai Quinoa, Millet, and Vegetable Salad

April 18, 2012

About four times a year I make the trek home to Minnesota. I have a love-hate relationship with the drive. On one hand is much easier to pack up the dog to drive than it is to fly. There was nothing worse than finding my generally unflappable dog shaking inside his kennel because he’d been […]

Grilled Wild Alaskan Black Cod Tacos with Pineapple-Bacon Relish

April 16, 2012

For this installment of the wild Alaska seafood blogger fish taco contest our challenge was to do a grilled taco. While I will admit that a fried fish taco in all its battered, crispy glory is more my style, I was curious to experiment with something a little lighter. As with my last recipe I […]

Chewy Banana Toblerone Cookies

April 11, 2012

Two months ago when I set out to find my perfect chewy banana cookie recipe I never stopped tinkering.  The version I came up with then got good reviews from family and friends and I liked the flavor and texture.  They were no muffin tops in disguise.  No, they were chewy and indulgent tasting, exactly […]

Carrot and Goat’s Milk Cheddar Soup

April 4, 2012

Last week it was ice cream, but this week it’s all about soup.  It might seem a bit incongruent, but it’s pretty representative of the weather we’ve been having these days in Chicago.  Somedays it’s nothing but blinding sunshine and I find myself practically skipping to work in a dresses and open toe shoes.  Other […]
